Cookies are made out of molds. Every cookie is symmetrical and in the same shape. Dentistry can’t be like that as each person is different and so are their teeth and their perspective. Smile is a part of your overall personality. Your smile is no cookie!

When you want to improve your smile, what are your choices for cosmetic dental work? There is no doubt that cosmetic dentistry is on the rise. Your dentist will be able to help you determine which one will work the best in brightening your smile. Your pearly whites help you achieve self-confidence and so it’s very important to take care of your smile.

Problems Addressed in Uplifting Your Smile:

The first and foremost thing is what do you want your face to look like? You want a smile that changes your overall persona of course. A good smile makes all the difference in your appearance.

Types of Cosmetic Procedures

There are several procedures that help you have a smile make over. After all it’s your smile, your way!

1. Teeth whitening: Most commonly done procedures. Many people have discolored teeth and they hide their smile. With this treatment they can flash their smile without hesitation.

2. Bonding: If minor smile imperfections are at the top of your must-fix list, then tooth bonding may be the right procedure for you. To conceal imperfections—like spacing, chips and even dark stains—your dentist can perform bonding, sculpting tooth-colored resin over the nooks and crannies of your teeth to give the appearance of a straighter, more balanced smile.

3. Teeth Straightening: Some people need their teeth to be straight to have a perfect smile. So you can go for braces to make that smile last forever.

4. Cosmetic Teeth Shaping: The dentist can reshape the tooth by filing or removing some of the enamel. This process is usually not painful and can produce immediate effects.

Consult your family dentist to discuss what you would like to have changed and which procedure is best suited for your needs. Maintaining a good oral hygiene always helps.
